    Mexico denies report that Trump threatened president over 'bad hombres'

    Mexico denies report that Trump threatened president over 'bad hombres'

    By Nikita Vladimirov - 02/01/17 07:55 PM EST

    The Mexican government is denying reports that President Donald Trump told Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto that U.S. forces will handle the "bad hombres down there" if the Mexican authorities don't.

    The Associated Press reported the story, citing an excerpt from a transcript of a Friday call. A similar account, citing sources in both countries, was also reported by D.C.-based journalist Dolia Estevez.

    The White House has reportedly denied the account, although no official statement has been released. The administration did not comment for the AP story.

    The excerpt obtained by AP does not specifically identify who the "bad hombres" are or mention the response of the Mexican leader.

    "You have a bunch of bad hombres down there," Trump told Peña Nieto, according to the report. "You aren't doing enough to stop them. I think your military is scared. Our military isn't, so I just might send them down to take care of it."

    The Mexican government maintained that the conversation between the two leaders was "constructive" and pushed back on reports that Trump humiliated Peña Nieto.

    "The assertions that you make about said conversation do not correspond to the reality of it," Mexico's foreign relations department said in a statement, as reported by AP.

    "The tone was constructive and it was agreed by the presidents to continue working and that the teams will continue to meet frequently to construct an agreement that is positive for Mexico and for the United States."

    Trump has previously pledged to push back on drug violence on the U.S.-Mexico border, and promised to deport "bad hombres" and "drug lords."

    "We are going to get them out, secure the border, and once the border is secure, at a later date, we will make a determination as to the rest. But we have some bad hombres here, and we are going to get them out," he said in October.

    Both countries are in a delicate state of diplomatic relations as Trump continues to promise that Mexico will pay for his signature wall on the U.S. border. Peña Nieto canceled a planned meeting with Trump after he signed an executive action directing the wall project to get underway.Peña Neto has repeatedly pledged that Mexico "will not pay for any wall."

    There is just awful FAKE NEWS being circulated, "leaks" from "sources", I don't believe any of it. If there is someone in the White Staff leaking this information in false form which I believe it is, they need to be sought out, hunted down and thrown out the door on their ass and anything to do with other countries or military which is sensitive information, charged with violating whatever laws they broke.
